swephR v0.2.1

July 7, 2019

(This article was first published on R on Ralf Stubner, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This morning swephR version 0.2.1 made
it unto CRAN and is now
propagating to the mirrors.

The goal of swephR is to provide an R interface to the
Swiss Ephemeris, a
high precision ephemeris based upon the DE431 ephemeris from NASA’s
JPL. It covers the time range 13201 BCE to 17191 CE.

This new version comes closely after last week’s release
and contains only a single albeit important fix to a stack overflow write
found by the UBSAN tests done on CRAN. Sadly I did not find this error using
rhub::check_with_sanitizers() before uploading to CRAN. I will analyze this
further before the next upload, since I fear that other issues like this might
surface as we expose more of the Swiss Ephemeris to R.
